Revolutionizing Mental Health Care Through Innovation

Tuesday, November 7, 2023
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM EST
Salamander Washington DC - Gallery B

No less than 50 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime. Today, less than 50 percent of those diagnosed with mental health conditions seek treatment. Various reasons are cited: stigma, lack of access, lack of resources, lack of education, and lack of confidence in available treatments, among others. There’s a need for sweeping intervention to address the growing mental health crisis, from healthy eating through digital technologies, to whole-person health, as well as judicious exploration of burgeoning fields such as psychedelics. Only with an interdisciplinary approach supporting healthier communities, workplaces, and homes can we tackle the components of mental wellbeing and close the mental health treatment gap. Panelists will discuss why the treatment gap exists, suggest ways to close it, and review emerging innovations in mental health care.
